You need to connect both (disk array and tape library) to the server, don't connect the library to the array.

Once the server can see the disks and the tape drives, you can configure your backup application.

Hope this helps!

Did you create a mapping on the NSR in the library?

Did you adjust your zoning on the switch?

Hope this helps!

You need to get the servers WWN and add it to the NSR's mapping table.


Hope this helps!

Re: HP StorageWorks MSL6000 Tape Library connect to a MSA2000 and a backup server

How do i get the PortWWN hi  and the PortWWN lo

also the NodeWWN hi and the NodeWWN lo 

and the host ID in hex

 

I tried to find out with the comand fcinfo but i can't find it

 

the only thing that i can find is:

 

There are 1 adapters:
com.qlogic-QLA2340-0: PortWWN: 21:00:00:e0:8b:88:9b:b3 \\.\Scsi3:

 

this is from the server.
